About Meopham Cricket Club
With its long history dating from 1776, the official foundation date of the Club, and even earlier, cricket on Meopham Village Green is a prominent feature of Meopham.
The Green is leased to Meopham Cricket Club who, in return for a peppercorn rent, maintain the Green both as a cricket ground and for the public to enjoy without restrictions except when a match is being played. Seldom is anything written about Meopham without reference to the "famous old cricket club and lovely village green on which cricket has been played for centuries". Meopham Cricket Club has opened its doors to membership from a wide area but it still prefers to field a side all found from within the Parish.
